Riff: My Bloody Valentine – “new you”

Feb 6, 2013

Always today hanging on/Just like you wanted me to do

from new you lyrics by My Bloody Valentine

Why Mr. Shields, with this tangible melody & a clearly audible, if deliberately abstract, set of lyrics that don’t require an ungodly amount of concentration to decipher, you are really spoiling us. Complete with an infectious series of ‘doo-doos,’ “new you” is the poppiest thing MBV have recorded.
